Kelley,
How are you trying to express the implied commands in the instructions, with the formal or informal imperative form? Hint: look at what they used: espolvear (dust, sprinkle)-espolvoree Vd.

agregar (add) tú agregra
Vd. agregue
dar (give, part of a phrase here, dar a vuelta) tú da
Vd. dé
Servirse (serve (it)) tú serve
(Vd.) sirva (sírvase)

The instructions could be rendered in the plural, but since they didn't, I won't either..

another hint: the command verb subjects are you...add the precious (delicious) prawns. The number of the verb doesn't changes because prawns is plural.
quemar=queman
salir=salen
esperar=espera (not esperas because of the le) Are you trying to used the present subjunctive when you make these changes? If so, salir would be salgan, not salan.

Ok, good try. The script is using formal commands so you should stick with that through-out where necessary.

empiezan
quemen
agregan - agregue (command)
dale - de (command)
salan - salgan (subjunctive)
solitas
Se sirva - sirvase (command)
Espere - espera (regular)
